Large deep pottery bowl with glass lid, mystery mark--what the heck is it?

Kitsy | Jan 29, 201903:46 PM     5

I got this at a thrift store for proofing bread dough. It's stoneware and it's big, at least 8 quarts, maybe 10-ish. The lid is not original. I've googled every single descriptor I can think of and have come up with nothing. I'm just very curious at this point, especially after seeing two more in the same thrift store recently. One was oval and one was round but a little shorter and both had pale color glazes. Both had original glass lids too, with a round, flat knob in the center.

Anyone have any idea what they were made for and by whom? They look like restaurant kitchenware to me. Mine is much too deep to use as a conventional casserole but it also seems odd that large bowl would have a glass lid.

about 10" high, 11" across top (not original lid)
